This is an amazing and versatile salsa! It's so easy to throw together quickly for a party. It can be an appetizer or a topping for any sort of grilled meat (I suggest beef or chicken). You can also adjust how spicy this salsa is by the amount of jalapeño you add. If you have family members that are not fans of spicy foods and others that desire a kick to their salsa, you can make it mild and then serve it with hot sauce. This will allow people to have their salsa exactly how they prefer it. This recipe is great for any summer party or holiday. As a bonus, it is healthy too! So grab some avocados and let the party begin.
You can substitute canned corn to 2 cups frozen corn, rinsed under cold water to thaw OR 2 cups fresh corn; cooked, cooled and kernels removed from the cob.
Preparation time is 15 minutes.
